Allo Chief,
Un mile des mercis pour cheque semaine avec votre weekly offering. I take them the moment they come out at noon chaque dimanche.
I have a suggestion, which I hope I do not convey in such manner that it is understood the wrong way.
Above the page, you honour the greats of movie soundtrack composers, including the truly immortal such as Newman, Hermann, Rozsa, etc. However, little of their work is actually provided compared to the weekly suites and revisitations of contemporary Hollywood blockbusters. I personally would love to find Citizen Kane (especially the aria Hermann composed for it) or the original Kong Kong of 1933 and feel that having another pastiche of Howard Shore or James Horner is like preaching to the converted. It would be great to have people of this generation be introduced to Maurice Jarre, or the love songs from Ben Hur or Doctor Zhivago. Compared to the real masters, those who actually listen to the soundtrack to Titanic without any sense of shame or embarrassment might learn the error of their ways.
Of course, can't comnlain about 1492; I feel Vangelis's work for Blade Runner one for the ages.

I'll have to think about it. I'm already working on some requests made earlier, including Lawrence of Arabia, Vertigo, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and I will expand them to other works from M. Jarre, B. Herrmann and E. Morricone.
You'll have to expect a lot more blockbusters in 2012 (with a focus on superhero movies), and Zimmer, and Mediaventuresque music (which was the primary intent for the blog after all).
Happy new year !
